Three West Hudson senior citizens were singled out for public tribute at the 2011 Municipal Seniors of the Year luncheon recently held at Casino-in-the-Park, Jersey City.
The May 25 event, sponsored by the Senior Advisory Council of Hudson County, called attention to the contributions made by seniors over a lifetime of service to family, community and country.
The West Hudson honorees were: Joseph A. Cundari of Harrison, Hugh Dalzell of Kearny, and Carmen Britez of East Newark.
Cundari, 96, began his career as an engineer 75 years ago after completing undergraduate and master’s degrees in civil engineering from Manhattan College.
